Kik was founded in 2009, when a small but incredibly passionate group of University of Waterloo students decided to build a company that would shift the center of computing from the PC to the phone.
Fast forward to today, and Kik Messenger has become the simplest, fastest, most life-like chat experience you can get on a smartphone. And unlike other messengers, Kik usernames – not phone numbers – are the basis for Kik user accounts, so our users are in complete control of who they talk to on Kik.
But Kik isn’t just about instant messaging. Kik fans are already exchanging videos, sketches, stickers and more, with mobile web pages optimized for Kik using Kik’s Developer Tools that help developers optimize, distribute and monetize their web content. And with our new built-in browser, users can search for and send any web site – all without leaving Kik, and all without downloading anything new.
To top it all off, we’re backed by major brand-name VC’s – the same firms that first helped Twitter, Foursquare, Zynga and others rise to world domination.
With over 120 million users and an incredible team, our plans are well underway.
